Not only will players receive high-level exposure, but the event will also serve as an identifier for the Prep Baseball Report Future Games, which is the premier summer scouting event for 2020 prospects across our coverage area, in addition to the North and South Texas Underclass Games hosted at Dallas Baptist and Texas A&M.

There will be a talented group on Tuesday, including:
